    Should I buy a 1993 Toyota Landcruiser FZJ80

    Hey, this is my first post on the forum. I'm a 19 and am looking at buying my first 4wd for weekend adventures. I have found a petrol 80 series with 179,000km for $13,000. I was just wondering people's thoughts on this whether it's worth it or should I buy a newer ute (like a demax or triton) or...

    auto box in a petrol 80 series?

    Just wondering what people's opinions are, I would like a cruiser as a first rig, preferably turbo diesel and manual, but with my budget (under $10k in South Australia), I can't seem to find any.

    Winch rope fouls on winch support bar

    Recently installed a Domin8r X winch into my 80 series on a winch cradle I fab'd up to sit behind my ARB Non-Winch bar. As the cradle bolts to the bottom of the chassis the winch sits quite low compared to the front of the bar so I have flipped the winch around so it pulls from the top, but...

    My Driving Light Set Up

    When ever I meet up with other overlanders I quite often get told that I do not have enough driving lights set up in my 80 series Land Cruiser. I generally try to avoid driving at night when I am overlanding. There was a time when I used to love overlanding in total darkness. It added to my...

    Trip Video | Part 2 - now out

    When we told friends that Coober Pedy was one of the places we will be visiting many said: "why do you want to spend three days in that dusty place?!". Well, we have never been known to listen to others so off we went. Yes, it was a dusty town, but there was so much see and experience. It is...
